Six Month Smile® is a dental procedure that can straighten your teeth in six months. It differs significantly from traditional braces. For many patients, it is the perfect solution for crooked or crowded teeth or gaps between teeth.
How Does the Six Month Smile Differ from Traditional Braces?
Instead of using silver wires and brackets, the Six Month Smile® uses tooth-colored wires and clear brackets. It is a comparatively quick process. Also, for minor gaps and crowded teeth, sometimes dentists can use invisible aligners instead of braces. Whether using aligners or braces, the process can take as little as six months. Because it takes less time, it also is typically less expensive. Patients generally have to wear traditional braces for at least 12 months and possibly up to 24 months.
